Lynn Garden Restaurant hosted its Heroes Dinner for local veterans, first responders and health care workers on Saturday, Oct. 16. The dinner was free, thanks to an anonymous donor who wanted to honor local heroes.

Suzanne Kerney-Quillen, whose family owns Lynn Garden Restaurant, helped coordinate the dinner for 200 local veterans, first responders and health care workers. Meals honoring healthcare workers were delivered to Holston Valley Medical Center, in addition to those served during the two scheduled seating times.
